Guardianship proceedings are used when non-parents (including grandparents or close relatives) seek to obtain custody of an abandoned or abused minor. Our paternity law services help these non-parents when the biological parents are disqualified or deemed unfit to provide care.
If you know of an abusive parent situation, call child protective services. Then, contact us to discuss possible guardianship. In the case of child abandonment, we can help you obtain guardianship without involving child protective services.
It’s not uncommon for stepparents to adopt their spouse’s children from a previous marriage. These adoptions are possible with the biological parent's consent or if the biological parent hasn’t made contact with the child for one year. Rely on us to represent you through all stages of the adoption process, from the initial investigation to the last piece of paperwork.
